Who would be surprised to hear Moss Jail dressed up for the photo op? There's more PR here than news.

OTOH, how do you suppose the jailers would react to loosing all that overtime pay?

If The mental health and drug courts would place their offenders in mental health facilities or rehab facilities instead of into jail for minor infractions it might help with some of the over crowding. I know an inmate who is currently housed at David L. Moss for cussing at his therapist and calling her a name. He is part of mental health court. Most of the inmates housed with my brother (the above mentioned) are there for failure to pay! If they are grisly concerned about over crowding they should take a look at the reasons so many are there. I fully support Gov. Mary Fallin in her decision to not give our jail system anymore money. We should be finding alternatives to using the jail as a mental health facility and a drug rehab facility.

I just saw the news report and it showed two officers to a pod. There are NEVER two officers in the pod, even when there was 114 inmates in a pod.
